James_Porto_The_Guardian_2001_Beacon_exhibitThe Guardian, one of the images from the Winged Women series, is on exhibit at Beacon Artists Union in Beacon, NY in a group show titled Saints and Sinners.  The print is a 16″x20″digital archival pigment print in a 20″x24″ frame.  There is a show closing party on Saturday, January 4, 2014 from 6-9pm at BAU gallery, 506 Main Street, Beacon, NY 12508.  Please join us for music, conversation and a great exhibit.

The show description from the BAU website follows:

Saint is a word used to describe a believer who is virtuous and will have salvation. Sinner is a word used to describe a breaker of laws, that’s headed for destruction. This season, often a time for self reflection, brings out the best and the worst in people. Even children worry about being on the naughty or nice list. From Saint Nicholas to the Krampus there are many ways to depict good and evil.

This year we had the pleasure of inviting to jury this exhibition, Carl van Brunt. Mr. van Brunt is a digital artist in his own right, a Beacon Gallerist from 2002-2010, and continues to curate numerous venues with van Brunt Projects and is currently the Director of the Wood Stock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM) in Woodstock, NY.
